Training Program for Prevention Week 2018

a a a

In 2018 the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) will take place from 17 to 25 November.

This year, the main theme of the week is "Hazardous Waste Prevention: Time to Detox!”, focusing in hazard waste.

It poses a greater risk to our health and our environment when compared to other types of waste. Thus, it is even more important to reduce our consumption of products with hazardous contents as well as make sure that they are properly disposed of. In 2018, it is time to detox and diminish the use of such products in our nearest surroundings such as bathrooms, kitchens, sheds and garages!

Complicated? No way! If you have no idea what actions to take, sign up for the Training Program and we'll give you a hand. We are counting on you!

The Training Program for the Development of the European Week for Waste Reduction is an initiative within the framework of the European Week for Waste Reduction and is based on the need to promote good practices between partners.

The EWWR 2018 Training Program aims to:

  • Promote the implementation of the European Week for Waste Reduction;
  • Training the supporters of initiatives;
  • Learn how to communicate: The European Week;
  • Actions of the Week: how to submit; how to energize; suggestions/ sharing of initiatives implemented by different entities.

The Training Program for the EWWR 2018 is intended for anyone wishing to participate in the European Week for Waste Reduction through the promotion of one or more prevention actions.
